Prior to the race commencement the riders are presented to the public at a ceremony that this year took place in the Vendee town of La Roche-sur-Yon.

The presentation ceremony is a great opportunity to see and photograph the riders and to see some of the behind the scenes infrastructure that keeps the riders in the saddle.
